I do a radio show for serious and I, I wear the behalf to wear them half on half off because I am so loud, then I need to be able to hear. Sure. Can I tell you what I like about the headphones? What's that? I know you're super curious. I was going to ask. Something about the headphones on and then us talking in the microphones. I kind of lose my other senses and it becomes kind of an alternate reality for me. It almost feels like doing drugs. There's something about like walking into my ears. I've always known as when I go do radio interviews. I'm like, I feel like I'm in a good mood when I'm doing that. Yeah, and I think it's like canceling out everything else. I'd rather just do drugs. Yeah, those are quicker. And. No, I know what you mean. But I, I need my foot. I need one foot on the ground. Right. I would imagine that about you. Okay. Today our guests on armchair expert is, you know, miss Johnny, Knoxville, but friends call you PJ, right? Yeah. PJ knocks, whatever. What's your, what's your birth name? Philip, John clap. Fantastic yet. So you did go by PJ as a kid? Yeah. Uh-huh. And who started that your parents or. You know? Yeah, my parents appear, they called me chip for like a few months which I'm so glad that didn't play out. Was it while the TV show chips was popular? No, no, probably I think maybe a little bit four little overlordship. Okay. Okay. Yeah, but you know, you and I both have rich friends. And do you find it a the least bit on bothersome when they refer to a private jet as a PJ? I've never heard that before. Wouldn't ins or Richard? No mind, listen, we have those many of the same friends. Just how I know you socially I've got. That's really annoying. That's like referring to Sandra Bullock is say indie.

What sport did you play that you got a jacket baseball? Oh, really? Yeah. What position? I know so little about baseball, but I'm pitcher and first base. So you were the stud. I thought just the two best positions and maybe shortstop or something shortstops usually your best athlete catcher as well catchers like the quarterback. Okay of I mean, the pitcher controls the game, but the catcher controls. Everything else. I'm basing this, I think on don't the pitchers get paid the most in the and the depends. Okay, hit too. Yeah, I think maybe the hitters probably get paid as probably neck and neck. Okay. And how long did you play baseball from six until I was eighteen then I all through high school. Yeah.
